Injuries are Often Most DevastatingROCHESTER, N.Y.- Car accidents happen in the U.S. about once every five seconds. Many of these crashes lead to severe and debilitating injuries for both drivers and passengers.

Everyone inside a vehicle can be subjected to over 100,000 pounds of force in a typical highway accident. These crashes most often lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI).

“We’ve seen some crash victims don’t fully recover from their injuries and we’ve handled several cases like this in Rochester,” car accident lawyer Ross Cellino said. “These injuries may not only hurt that driver or that passenger, its impacts are felt by an entire family.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, car crashes and motorcycle accidents account for more than 35 percent of new spinal cord injuries each year. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of SCIs, sending millions of people to the hospital each year.

“The spine is a very fragile and important part of the body,” Cellino said. “If it’s damaged, a person can experience loss of muscle function in their arms and legs or even paralysis.”

In cases of TBI, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate over 2.5 million people were treated in U.S. hospitals last year. TBIs are most often caused by falls, usually among small children or the elderly.

Experts say each case is different. Some people experience the effects of SPIs and TBIs for just a few days while others may develop disabilities which can last the rest of their lives.

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
